Laurel Fork Creek – Oconee County, South Carolina

Michael Traufler of Columbia took this shot of Laurel Fork Creek near Lake Jocassee in May 2008.
He writes: “This photo is of Laurel Fork Creek just above Laurel Fork Falls where the creek empties into Lake Jocassee. It was taken while on a backpacking trip in May 2008. This creek has a lot of salamanders and small fish. It also happened that early May is a good time to see the Blue Ghost Fireflies that have the unique characteristic of not flashing. They emit a steady light and the woods were thick with them as soon as the sun went down. It literally looked as if someone had strung Christmas lights through the woods.”
